    Wonder why in the first post of that thread they said the nero used 1,000cst.

    I do not know. The Big Rock manual calls out 1,000cst and the Nero manual calls out 3,000cst. I cannot verify that it is indeed correct.

    You need to run it and see what works. The outcast manual says two different weights in two different sections lol i would just run it and if it's too much out not enough change it. That's my favorite part about rc....the tuning. With these it's not as needed as say my truggy or touring car but it's still rewarding when you find a sweet tune.

    And your not wrong, the nero manual does show 3000cst for shock oil. That thing must have huge holes in the shock pistons. That's some seriously heavy oil for shocks.

    I run 70/80 in my revo's, but they only have 2 hole pistons, which I think are 1.2mm in size. I have the variable rate kit on all of them though, so on rebound, a valve unblocks 2 more holes. Without that, they barely rebound with 80wt and stiff springs. Even running that heavy though, I have issues with my shock pistons splitting in half on me. At least on my brushless revo. I had to dial it down to 60/70wt and let it bottom out hard all the time.

    I cannot confirm that the manual is right however. I am just stating that that's what the manual says. If you have 90wt you may want to compare it to what is in the shocks already. If the shocks have 1,000cst/80wt already they should be similar in consistency.

    I use 80 all around. I'm not sure about their manuals but the one i have says 80 stock. So that's what i used. It's way way harder then stock but it works great!! The only thing is is i put an extra hole or two in the pistons because with such thick fluid it blows out the center where the shaft goes threw on huge airs. And ever sense i put an extra hole in it it last a little longer. I actually started a thread about if someone knows any better options then the stock shock pistons. I haven't gotten any responses yet.

    I agree 90wt is gonna be spongey. I run pt racing oils and on request you can order any cst you want.

    Diff fluid and shock fluid are the same just after a certain thickness they start to call it diff fluid.
